    Well, actually, Escobar is hitting as well as Plouffe and is a much better fielder at 3B. When Santana comes back where does he play? If he is your starting SS, that puts Escobar on the bench.

    I agree with Seth that Suzuki is the Twins best trade chip, among position players. On the theory that any player can be had for a price, I say sure, listen to the offers. But if someone offers a...

    His value to the Twins is also at an all-time high. I'm not saying don't trade him. I'd talk to him first about what he wants to do next year. If he wants an extension, why the hell not give it to...

    Meyer missed part of the 2013 season with a shoulder injury, and the Twins have stated he won't be asked to pitch a full season this year. I don't know why people want him promoted to bullpen duty. ...

    I think Polanco's brief call-up will prove to be very useful in his development. Now he knows he can play at the major league level, which should give him a lot of incentive to work on his skills. ...

    I don't see any more FA pitcher signings. The only way the Twins add a veteran starter is by trading one of our projected 2015 starters -- there is already going to be a log jam. For example, ...

    The Twins are too inconsistent to go anywhere in the wild card race, and I don't see that changing until more young arms and bats get up here. I will be sorry to see Polanco go.

    Santana is the team's igniter. As long as he keeps getting on base and rattling opposing pitchers, he will have a starting job somewhere on the field. I am fascinated as hell by his sudden...

    Pinto sucks at catcher. He should work on his catching skills in Rochester.

    The offense is moving in the right direction, no doubt. Even without Mauer, the Twins are scoring runs.
    Now, the pitching, on the other hand, has been maddeningly inconsistent. There is no way the...

    If the Twins replaced Kubel with Pinto, and replaced Correia with May, I think they would finish above .500 AND continue the transition to younger players. There is no way in heck they will beat...

    Santana has no business playing SS at the major league level. Gardy is right about that one. Hicks needs to be sent down to AAA, and my prediction is that's what will happen when Fuld comes off the...

    You'd be guessing wrong.

    Prior only pitched for five years.

    Hicks would benefit from batting right-against-righty in a development setting, i.e. AAA. On the other hand, Hicks has taken a positive step on his own initiative, which is a sign of maturity. It's...

    Parker -- Your article is incomplete! I agree totally that Bartlett had no business in the OF, and Escobar has shown that he should stay in the infield. However, from what I've seen, Santana and...

    If you hold someone accountable for bad pitching performances by releasing him, maybe he learns from that and does better someplace else. My beef with the Twins is how often they ran Pelfrey out...

    It has been a lot of fun watching the Twins misfits take it to the other team, when no rational person would give them a chance. These guys are playing hard, I'd say maybe playing over their heads a...

    Sunday's game blew my little mind, to quote an old Donovan song. As Nick Nelson tweeted, the Rochester Red Wings infield was playing outfield for the Twins by the end of the game. Nunez in left,...

    Agree completely. That's why I think Pinto will be demoted to AAA as soon as Arcia or Willingham are ready. The team really needed a DH, and Pinto delivered, but he's not ready to be up here as a...

    After the way this season has started out, I'm sure Ryan is asking himself "why did I spend all that money on free agents?" The starting pitching is terrible, except for Gibson, and the beer league...

    I dunno what to say man. "Beer League" Colabello is driving me nuts. He stands 10 feet from the plate and hits everything. As long as he can keep doing this, I'm taking the over.

    Well, there's a wet blanket if I ever heard one. I am not predicting playoffs either, but I can't rule it out after the Twins' hot start offensively.

    Nick - I agreed with everything you said except for the remark about Presley. Good riddance to that no-hit AAAA player. Now that he's healthy again, Mastroianni is a much better reserve OF due to...

    I am still scratching my head on the Nunez deal. The Twins biggest problem right now is pitching, and weakening your defense will make that problem worse.
